Both of these shots where taken in an attempt to get a good shot of my eyes using my extra flash with the reflector. Both shots were good enough to keep. I liked the close-up one and left it as is. The full face shot, I thought, could use a little something. I took an old photo of a swamp that I had on my computer and played around with layers and filters in Photoshop. I like how it came out. It’s not my best work, but it’s good. I like taking quotes from my favorite songs. I had been listening to Beirut a lot, so I wanted a quote from one of those songs. The other quote is one of my favs from a NIN song.


“Those were our times” ~Zach Condon, Beirut


“She reads the minds of all the people as they pass her by hoping someone can see” ~Trent Reznor, NIN
